Since the start of the pandemic, some Wyoming residents and business owners have indicated that state officials, especially the Governor and the state health officer, had a heavy handed approach to health orders.
In mid-March, 2020, the governor issued public health orders requiring all food establishments to close to the public and only offer food for take out or delivery. These restrictions stayed in place until early January when, slowly, they started to be lifted.
Almost exactly a year later, all public health orders for restaurants have been lifted and businesses can return to their pre-pandemic operations if they so choose. The statewide mask mandate is also lifted at this time. It's been met with a mixed response from both the public and business owners.
